The Department of Economic Development held its 6th Annual Energy Expo this May focusing this year’s event on ‘Renewable Energy’. Prospero are enthusiastic about offering and supporting new energy efficient technology for domestic and commercial properties. At the Energy Expo this year ‘Air Source’ and ‘Ground Source Heat Pumps’ where displayed and demonstrated by Prospero as a live working model was on display producing heat and hot water. Prospective customers could be shown accurately the capital and operational costs, savings over existing equipment, payback period and carbon emissions reduction all through Prospero’s bespoke simulation software.
There was a high level of interest in Propsero’s Heat Pump and Solar Thermal products this year as the general awareness of heat pumps has increased dramatically over the last year due to rising energy costs and property development television programs. The Air Source Heat Pumps are very flexible both in size and application with Prospero able to offer a selection being suitable for either direct boiler replacement allowing traditional radiator systems to be kept or complete low temperature solutions. There is also a Solar Thermal solution suitable for each of the systems available.
The enquiries taken at the show ranged from apartments to townhouses, farms to office buildings. Since the show Prospero have carried out numerous surveys and supplied quotes and simulations. With the potential customers being given a budget cost beforehand these are all genuine enquiries. Prospero have already been able to offer these customer’s significant savings on their current systems and have orders to proceed with a number already this summer. Prospero have been installing these systems since their launch in 2007 and have a portfolio of sites and more importantly happy customers. With the introduction of the MEA’s ‘Heat Pump Tariff’ Prospero are now able to see customers making a saving of up to 50% on their annual heating costs without the use of solar thermal!’ If Solar Thermal where to be utilised in conjunction with the specified heat pump then the savings would be greater still.
